ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP...
During this 1 hour workshop you will be introduced to both Sashiko + Boro - the wonderful traditional Japanese mending embroidery techniques.
This is a really lovely workshop - introducing you to a different type of embroidery and mending while contributing to a good cause.
ALL proceeds of the workshop will be donated to Black Visions Collective - for more information please visit www.blackvisionsmn.org to find out more about the organisation.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN...
We will teach you both Sashiko + Boro embroidery - using a lovely 100% cotton sashiko thread. You will embroider two different designs onto two pieces of fabric, which you can wear as a patch on an item of clothing, or sewn onto a cushion (which we will demonstrate in class) or even displayed in an embroidery hoop.
All materials will be supplied by Restoration London and sent out to you in a pack.
If you are unable to finish your patches within the hour - not to worry! We will be sure to show you absolutely everything you need to know and will also provide you with a recording of the workshop so that you can refer back to it at a time that’s most convenient for you!
As mentioned above all of the proceeds for this workshop will be donated to Black Visions Collective - thank you so much for showing your support.
